Be Not Afraid - Engage For Christ

An Amazing Journey

An Amazing Journey
Learn about the inspiring faith witness of someone with unique gifts who answered the call to go on an incredible journey. As a young person, he had serious doubts about his faith; however, in high school he was urged by a friend to attend a Steubenville youth retreat and he went. Although skeptical at first, while there, he met Jesus in a special way during Eucharistic Adoration. This encounter would forever change his life. Meet Father Joshua Johnson, a follower in love with Jesus Christ, and a faithful servant of God’s people.

Father Joshua Johnson gained viral fame as a rapping priest, but his ministry to youth and young adults is more important.

“I Will Follow” is a powerful short film by Ascension Press featuring the testimonies of Fr. Josh Johnson and Fr. Mike Schmitz that relates their journey to the priesthood. This engaging video is also illustrative of the wonder and awe a believer experiences during the Eucharistic Celebration.

Father Josh Johnson was a featured speaker at the 2016 Southern Regional Conference of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal that was held in Metairie, Louisiana. Other featured speakers were Michelle Moran and Father Mark Goring.

Father Josh is now the pastor of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in St. Amant, Lousiana. He has authored three books that can be found at Ascension Press and Amazon:

  • Blessed and Broken
    by Fr. Josh Johnson
  • Pocket Guide to Adoration
    by Fr. Josh Johnson
  • Pocket Guide to the Sacrament of Reconciliation
    by Fr. Josh Johnson and Fr. Mike Schmitz
